KING OF ALES

KING OF ALES CONTINUEDFROM FRONT COVERviscosity before the taste of coffee and molassescovers your taste buds. The aftertaste ofliquorice from the malt and slight spice fromthe relatively light use of hops complementsthe preceding flavours very well and forms theperfect end to this beautiful beer.Chief Executive of WJ King, Nigel Lambe,who together with Ian Burgess bought thebrewery in June last year, said “we are excitedto be winning awards so soon after taking onthe brewery. Ian is a true master of brewing,so we are really lucky to be working with himand we plan to bring out many more innovativeand popular beers, like our Brighton Best,Horsham Best and Red River.” With a 200-yeartradition of brewing some of the mostrespected and enjoyed Sussex ales, WJ Kinghas evolved into a new style of micro brewery,using only the finest natural and local ingredientsand traditional brewing techniques to producethe finest quality local ales.CAMRA’s congratulations go also toHammerpot brewery for being a categoryfinalist with their Bottle Wreck Porter in thesame competition.Continued from coverSussex Drinker: Spring 2011.
